No One Even Wants to Hear Louis C.K.’s Voice Now, so He’s Being Dubbed out of Cartoons
Since the long-rumored allegations about Louis C.K.’s predatory behavior towards young female comics were finally made public, he’s lost out on a lot of work. His entire career basically disappeared overnight. FX removed him from all projects, Netflix cancelled his upcoming special, HBO removed all of his programming from their schedule, his manager and publicist dropped him, and The Orchard sold his own movie back to him because they didn’t want anything to do with it.
Now, C.K. has been edited out of two old episodes of the awesome animated series Gravity Falls, because audiences aren’t just done with the idea of watching C.K.; we don’t even want to hear his voice. Too bad for him, because this was clearly the character he was born to play: a literal monster trying to bar someone from leaving a room and creepily talking about getting them to go inside his mouth. The character’s actual credited name is The Horrifying Sweaty One-Armed Monstrosity. So yes, perfect casting there.
The monster has been redubbed with the voice of the show’s creator, Alex Hirsch. The episodes–”Weirdmageddon: Part 1,” which aired in 2015, and the 2016 follow-up, “Weirdmageddon: Part 3″–are now on the Disney XD schedule in their new form. The rerecording reportedly happened about a month ago, which is commendable, because the New York Times story detailing the allegations against him broke only about six weeks ago.
You can watch a clip of the new, redubbed version above. You can also watch the original below, with C.K.’s voice still attached. Warning, though: I seriously wish I’d never heard this particular man say the words “going inside my mouth.” It’s likely to make your skin crawl.
